Insurance Corporate lawyers

2015 saw in excess of USD 100bn in merger and acquisition activity across the global (re)insurance sector[1], with the expectation of more to come.

The successful execution of corporate transactions in the insurance market requires corporate lawyers who understand the insurance sector, its unique risks and how they can be mitigated in a pragmatic and cost-effective manner.

Our award-winning corporate insurance team advises on M&A, reorganisations, investments, outsourcings, Part VII transfers, schemes of arrangement, reinsurance and risk transfer.

CMS was named the ‘Best firm for corporate advice in Europe’ in the Reactions’ Insurance and Reinsurance Legal Survey in both 2013 and 2014 and the ‘go-to’ firm for companies seeking corporate advice.

Our corporate insurance team advises on all aspects of insurance-related transactions and works closely with our financial services, regulatory, reinsurance, claims, competition, employment, pensions, tax and dispute resolution departments, and other specialists.
